Yummy! This soup is great! I make this soup when I make an Italian dinner for guests and everyone wants the recipe. It's also great on those cold winter days where suppers call for a hot and delicious soup. A combination of sausage and vegetable in a beefy broth. This may be made a day in advance. Tastes even better the second day. Enjoy!

I have been craving Italian sausage lately, and had a can of garbanzo beans that I hadn't been able to figure out what to do with. Allrecipes app to the rescue. This. Was. FABULOUS!! I did make a some changes to the recipe, though, using what I had on hand: I used Italian seasoning (generously) instead of sage. I used fat free chicken broth instead of bullion cubes. My sausage was mild Italian pork sausage instead of turkey, and I didn't have parsley. I also added some orzo, to give it a little more "fill". It smelled and tasted like the sausage lentil soup from Carrabbas restaurant which is a family favorite. It was a big hit with my teenage boys. Definitely making it again. Read More

Very good and easy. I sauteed onions then added sausage. When sausage brown I scraped fond clear with 2 TBSP of Marsala wine, then added carrots, garlic, beans my husband had soaked in water plus one can of Garbanzo beans, 3 chopped Fingerling potatoes, about a cup of beef broth and a bay leaf. Couldn't find my sage so used 21 Gun Seasoning from TJ. I let it simmer and added fresh Dill and the parsley plus 4 oz Heavy Whipping cream. Wow so good! In high rotation here! I know, a lot of tweaking but this is a very adaptable recipe. Hats off to the submitter! Read More

This was super tasty! I had a package of froze Italian veggies on hand so I used those with onion and white beans but kept everything else pretty much the same. The seasonings work really well together. Will make again! Oh I did also add just like 5 oz of low carb rotini pasta otherwise my bf would turn his nose up at it. It made a good addition! Read More

I made this last minute so I used regular Jimmy Dean sausage instead of turkey sausage and rosemary instead of sage. I used dried parsley instead of fresh. I used a quart of beef broth in place of bouillon cubes. I also added a bit of spinach (soup is where I can get the kids to eat vegetables). Everyone in the family LOVED this soup and requested that it be a family regular. Read More

This was excellent! I was missing some ingredients to make my usual sausage soup recipe so tried this one instead and it's a keeper! I made a few minor adjustments: added one more cup of water added about 1.5tbsp tomato paste and used cannellini beans instead of garbanzos. Also I used pork sausage since that's what I had on hand and baby portabello mushrooms. We didn't have a drop left! Will definitely make it again. Read More

Pretty good.... I used pork Italian sausage 3 carrots 3 stalks of celery 1 large onion NO mushrooms extra garlic and dry garbanzo beans. Added about 6 cups of water plus a few beef bouillon cubes and cooked in my Instant Pot for about 35 minutes (I added the extra water to compensate for the dry beans). Kept with the original seasoning but at the end decided to add some Italian seasoning at the end to top it off. It was yummy but I needed a bit more texture to it so I added some ditalini pasta... So the recipe is great starting point and very forgiving if you need to just use what you have on hand! Read More
